Few Things You Need To Know About Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson is an American singer and songwriter who came to the limelight of the entertainment industry for his blending traditional honky-tonk and mainstream country-pop sounds (for a style widely regarded as “neotraditional country”), as well as penning many of his own songs.

The legendary singer recorded 16 studio albums, three greatest hits albums, two Christmas albums, and two gospel albums.

Born to Joseph Eugene “Daddy Gene” Jackson (1927–2000) and Ruth Musick “Mama Ruth” Jackson (1930–2017) in Newnan, Georgia, and had four older siblings Alan Jackson was one of the best-selling music artists of all-time.

In 1985, the couple followed Campbell’s suggestion and moved into a basement apartment in the Donelson neighbourhood, near the Nashville airport. Jackson began working in the mailroom at The Nashville Network, a cable TV channel, and he picked up extra money singing demo recordings for songs written by other songwriters. He dedicated himself to writing his own material, which landed him a songwriting deal with Campbell’s publishing company, KayTeeKay Music.

Jackson began recording his own songs in 1988 with the help of producer Keith Stegall. Those demo recordings led Jackson to his contract with Arista and the release of his 1990 debut album, Here in the Real World—co-produced by Stegall and Scott Hendricks—which sold two million copies. Every album Jackson released for the next fifteen years, all produced by Stegall, sold a million or more copies.

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Jackson wrote and recorded “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning).” He introduced the song at the 2001 CMA Awards, and it grew into a #1 hit that received national attention.
